In practical life no, as long as you use bucket-types properly.

I assume you'll want one index per bucket. SOLR indexes are mostly 
limited by the RAM and disk space that you can throw at them

You should create a unique bucket-type, and have all these team buckets 
under that same bucket-type. That would work fine for 10k or 100k. For 
100k, especially if you have 100k SOLR indexes, I recommend that you 
have a solid cluster, something like dozens of boxes with a lot of RAM 
(100G looks good) and CPUs (8 or 12)

Of course these numbers are completely guestimate, because I have no 
idea what your workload will be.
